Voigtlander Ultron SLII review.
I don't know about the EF mount as it has yet to be released. It is a small lens with not too bad performance.
I thought of getting it as a "travel" lens cos it's so small, but the awkward focal length and distracting bokeh put me off. I'm sticking with my Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 (distortion! urgh.........) and the Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL II for now.
I wonder if I'll change my mind about the Ultron 40mm SL II if I had a chance to try it out for a day. Hmmm....

To show that the camera retains f2.5 even when using a Kenko 1.4x TC. Pardon the poor shot (taken with my old handphone)

no degration of image with tc. Note that MFD increases with the tc attached. However, you still get a magnified image due to the increased reach.
using old ram from my previous notebook as test subject. Couldn't find any insects in my house to shoot.
so besides getting a portrait lens between 100L and 135L . You also get 2 macro lens 125/2.5 and 175/2.5 with the addition of tc. I don't have the 2x tc to try. Judging by the 1.4x tc, the 2x tc may give 250/2.5 ?

i used to get f2.8 on my telephoto with teleconverter on, but its actually working at around f5.6 so when it got darker it was hard to auto focus
so in terms of metering there should be some changes if you intend to use it manually
